State, feds to unveil latest drought strategies today

State and federal water managers and wildlife agencies are doing a media call today to give updates on the drought and their efforts to balance demands. The call will include officials from the state departments of Water Resources and Fish and Wildlife and the State Water Resources Control Board as well as the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Weather Service.

I'll be attending this morning's state water board meeting on proposed grazing regulations, but I should be back in time for this afternoon's call. The call comes as the federal Climate Prediction Center is still bullish on the prospect of a wet winter, but the center's 14-day outlook calls for a whole lot of dry.

Keep an eye here and at CapitalPress.com for updates on what the water and wildlife gatekeepers say -- and do.
